Peaches and Cream

There I was in the grocery store, and there they were, lovely, luscious peaches. I had just spent the morning trying to help a bridesmaid pin and tuck herself into her dress. Technically, I was delivering the bridal flowers to the bride, but ever the helpful floral designer I was asked to help in this tricky endeavor. The bridesmaid had recently become pregnant, and well, things weren't fitting like they were supposed to....which got us to complaining about the bigger questions in life. Like why do sundress designers design with spaghetti straps, and these tiny little triangle bodices? Who could possibly fit into these things?

Later, I posted this very same question on


This is where parallels were drawn and comparisons to fruit ensued. I take absolutely no responsibility for this occurrence. I will just say that someone mentioned peaches ....which brings me back to the peaches at the grocery store...

I was thinking peaches as a summer wedding theme would be so lovely. If you added touches of cream, lace, rustic wood tables....wouldn't it be be divine? Of course, you would NEVER put your girls in bridesmaids dresses with spaghetti straps ,or tiny little triangle bodices because that is just cruelty to peaches and will cause a riot.

Laina and Paul: Simple Elegance

Married! Paul and Laina got married in a fabulous backyard wedding. Table centerpieces of white hydrangea and orange ribbon.
Laina is a simple and elegant bride. Her Grecian styled wedding dress was beautifully complimented by these amazing mango calla lilies.

Laina made the bridesmaids dresses. The girls carried white calla lilies wrapped in bright orange ribbon. The boys corresponded with white calla lily boutonnieres, except Paul who had an orange calla.
I LOVE this shot! Cool sophistication. All the professional photos were taken by Georgie Wilson Photography. She did a fantastic job! Thank-you Georgie!
For the flower girls I made cream coloured cones with bright orange ribbon; they tossed bright orange rose petals.
Who really wants to wear high heels for dancing?
I love the flow of Laina's wedding dress. Stunning.

All the boys wore these orange and white argyle socks and bright orange ties. Loved it!
Paul and Laina made blackberry jam as wedding favours. Good idea!
Cupcake details carried through with their theme colours of bold orange and white.
Congratulations Laina and Paul.Wishing you much happiness. You all looked so stunning!
